Patricia Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Brown Brothers

Minimum order of 1 case or 6 bottles (Mixed or straight)

The fruit for this 2018 wine was sourced from premium Victorian vineyards, to bring together a complex and well balanced expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Individual parcels were matured in new and aged French oak barriques for 18 months before being blended to achieve concentrated fruit character and subtle tannins giving this wine sensational length and cellaring potential.

Patricia would have loved it.

This concentrated red wine would make a great partner to Venison Bourguignon with roasted potatoes in their jackets. It could also be enjoyed with a selection of aged cheddar cheese at the end of a meal.

This 2018 vintage has an inky dark purple colour.

Growing Conditions

The 2018 vintage was characterized by warm to hot temperatures, which resulted in pristine grapes with immense fruit concentration. The warm weather allowed the grapes to ripen fully, leading to an abundance of concentrated flavours and aromas. Bendigo brought the colour, while the Yarra Valley provided balance.
